Which way should skylight hatches face?
Our boat has five Bomar hatches of varying sizes. The three forward ones have the hinges on the back. The two aft ones have the hinges forward. That arrangement works for us while coastal cruising and at anchor for ventilation purposes. We dog down the forward ones while underway. Do any of you blue water guys have any strong opinions on which way the hatches should open?
